Backup Scheduling options

Vembu offers different scheduling options starting as low as 15 minutes. You can choose Hourly/Daily/Weekly backup schedules based on how frequently the successive backups are to be performed.

Application-Aware Backup

Also, the log truncation option will automatically truncate the log files after every successful backup.

Quick VM recovery

Vembu Quick VM recovery allows instant restore of VMs ensuring an RTO of less than 15 minutes. Irrespective of the native hypervisor, the backed up Hyper-V VM data is quickly booted on VMware, Hyper-V or KVM environments directly from the backup repository.

Full VM Recovery

If the production VM gets affected due to unexpected failure or disaster, the entire VM can be permanently restored from the backup to the same or different Hyper-V server.

Granular Recovery for Files/Apps

Without restoring the entire VM, you can restore only the individual files/folders or the individual application items of Microsoft Exchange, SharePoint, SQL and Active Directory from the image-level backup.

Cross-Platform Migration (V2V & P2V)

The backup data can be downloaded into various virtual disk formats like VHD, VHDX, VMDK, VMDK-FLAT, and IMG. With these formats, the Hyper-V VMs can be easily migrated to other hypervisors like VMware vSphere, KVM, etc.

Efficient Storage Management
